Have you ever had a pair of skateboard shoes? If not you will probably ask yourself why would you ever need them. The short answer is COMFORT. I personally have been wearing them ever since I first tried skateboarding and the reason is mentioned above. Skateboard shoes are meant not only to withstand aggressive wear but also to protect your feet from injuries and be comfortable so that your feet don’t get tired. As a nice bonus they mostly look good. You don’t necessarily need to be a skateboarder or a bmx rider to wear good shoes. People who have ever worn that kind of shoes usually stick with it. I’m sure most of you know many of the brands that make skateboarding shoes and apparel but not all of you tried them. There’s a rare chance you have not seen brands like Vans, DC or quicksilver however some companies you actually may not know and I will name them for you. Again, there’s Vans, Quicksilver, DC, éS, DVS, Emerica, Lakai, Etnies, VOX, C1RCA, Osiris, Element and more. Most of these companies not only sell shoes but lots of other clothes as well. Check’em websites and you are sure to find something you’ll want to wear.
